Is that like coding in C# ?

We had a frost yesterday morning at 7:15 a.m. People were scraping their car windows. That's the coldest I think it has been this winter here, so far.

I live about 25 miles South of Washington DC in the US. Right now it is 32F with some freezing rain still falling, but another few degrees and it should turn to all rain for the rest of today and tomorrow.


freezing rain? you mean snow? or hail?


No 'freezing rain' is when it falls from the sky as rain but then hits the ground and freezes, hail or snow are both frozen before they hit the ground. The local weather man did a 5 minute talk on the differences the other day.

@SandJ I don't remember it getting below freezing very much in my time in Scotland back in the mid 70's. I was at the US Navy Base at Holy Loch/Dunoon for a year. It snowed one time but rained almost every day!! Painting submarines while they were in dry dock was NOT fun in the rain!! We HAD to use rollers and those things are HUGE!!!

Oh, hello!

@SandJ I don't remember it getting below freezing very much in my time in Scotland back in the mid 70's. I was at the US Navy Base at Holy Loch/Dunoon for a year.

I don't know how I gave the impression I was living in Scotland, but around the time I started posting in these threads I was on a most excellent motorcaravan holiday in Scotland - could it be I raved about that holiday so much people think I live there? Well, there's no shame in that, I suppose, for me nor the Scots.

The opening sequence of the first series of the TV series, Red Dwarf, had Lister in a space suit using a roller to spread paint. They pan out and it is part of a huge 'F', they keep panning out and he disappears and you see 'RED DWARF'. They keep panning out and you see it is the name on the outside of the vast mining ship

I thought that was comedy gold when I first saw it.

Ah sorry you are correct, I just assumed that you were going from one part of Scotland to another for your vacation.

No worries.

It's funny how military tech. is hugely expensive and bleeding edge, but still relies on some poor sod getting wet or muddy or cold to make it work.

Everything breaks at some point, so even if the tech is remotely controlled as in drones, some poor sod still must do as you said at some point!

Going by the news in South West England, it's not so much spring, as sprung a leak.

"My wife said that she always wanted to see what Venice looked like. So this weekend I'm taking her to Somerset." ba-dum tish!

I'll get my coat...
